Foxit Quick PDF Library

Error: ActiveX component can’t create object

The following error message is shown sometimes when using ASP, VBScript, Microsoft Access, VBA and other technologies:

ActiveX component can’t create object

As the error message describes the ActiveX component can’t create the referenced object. This usually occurs when the ActiveX edition of Foxit Quick PDF Library has not been successfully registered using regsvr32 on the end users machine. The ActiveX must be registered with administrator privileges and it must be registered before you call it in the code, however, once it has been registered it can run under accounts with lesser privileges.

If that still does not work then find out if your application is running as 32-bit or 64-bit and make sure you are using the right corresponding version of the library (.e.g DebenuPDFLibraryAX1312.dll is 32-bit and DebenuPDFLibrary64AX1312.dll is 64-bit). This error message can be generated in the event that you are trying to use the 32-bit version of Foxit Quick PDF Library with the 64-bit version of Microsoft Access 2010, as one example.
